SUNGAI BULOH: Student Ain Husniza Saiful Nizam says she will countersue her physical education teacher for RM5mil.
Her lawyer Datuk Sankara Nair said, following the letter of demand, he advised her that they had a case for a countersuit.
“I have responded by letter that we are suing for RM5mil for inflicting intentional emotional distress.
“I have issued a letter to their lawyer on this,” he told reporters at the Sungai Buloh police headquarters yesterday.
Ain Husniza was called to the police headquarters to have her statement taken.
She said she did not mean to insult or degrade anyone and only wanted schools to be safe.
“It is our right as students to have safety at schools.
“The police were very professional. My father and I will cooperate in their investigation.
“I really want to see the results of the case,” she told reporters.
She said being called up to have her statement taken did make her sad and was heart-breaking but when she went in the police were very nice.
It was reported that Ain Husniza had received a letter of demand for alleged defamatory remarks she made.
The 17-year-old student wrote about this in an Instagram post on Wednesday.
According to the letter, Ain Husniza said that she had seven days to fulfil the demands, one of which was to pay RM1mil for punitive damages.
She made headlines earlier this year for calling out her physical education teacher’s rape jokes made in class.
In a Facebook post this week, her father Saiful Nizam Abdul Wahab said that the letter, which was delivered at 2pm, was for Ain Husniza, himself and his wife.
Saiful Nizam also noted that the letter came from the physical education teacher at the school his daughter previously studied.
